I've been using ww for awhile now. This is the first time I've ever posted. I usually just enjoy checking out the post, pics, etc.... This guy Joe seems to give alot of people a hard time! Is it just me or does this guy seem a little bitter, or maybe needs another hobby,12000 posts. Holy Sh** Any help!

I haven't seen many post of Joe being bitter. He seems decent to me and had something to do with a wake video of two.

Joe has his own opinions, you can agree or disagree with him, he really dosen't care. But he is very knowledgeable of our sport and tied into the industry more then most. And a pretty cool guy.

Don't take everything that Joe says to seriously; he's just a funny guy.

By the way Joe, I couldn't wait for your 21 epic to come out so I got another 210, sorry.

I have known Joe for many years. Yes back in the day, Joe would get on here and F*** with people for fun, but not in a VERY long time (2+ years?). I can't remember when, but Joe mellowed out quite a bit.

ip check please???? and feel free to post the match on here.

Joe is a good cat. One thing that will strike you when you get to know Joe is that despite any crap he may give someone, he views the people on this board as his friends. Take his ish giving with a grain of salt and realize he's a good fella to know, you might run into him someday and find out first hand. Plus, he could probably beat any of us to death with his left hand. You have been warned.

Joe is a natural lurker. Up late, multiple browsers open, 4-5 sites at a time, blood shot eyed, watching, waiting . . . for posts about himself.

To throw you guys off, he posts every now and again. It is an act. He'd rather not be seen.

Creep . . .

If ur new, joe may seem 'bitter' as you've put it, but in time you will get to understand his humor. Besides i really appreciate that he says things as they are, and not sugar coat them as someone else put it.

i meet joe before, and he was 7 feet tall. My car got blocked in and he picked it up and moved it for me.

i tried to pay him for the service, but he flew away before i got a chance to.

great guy.

Joe simply treats conversations on the board as if they were happening in real life. If you were talking to a guy who said to you, "I think your boat sucks", you'd probably have a word or two with him. Online, people try to get away with stuff they wouldn't normally, and Joe calls them on it. Good for him, I wish more people would.

I can personally attest that Joe has been around forever. I think I remember first seeing him back in 96-97 or something. In wakeboard/internet years that is about a lifetime.

LOL I just saw this post and read through it. I was laughing the whole way through. A few years ago when I first started boarding and found this site, I knew nothing about wakeboarding, I just knew I loved it. I noticed Joe posted more then most people and tended to be oppiionated which was fine with me. After being on the board a few years now, Joe is probably one of the most knowledgeable guys on this thread. I may not agree with everything he posts but he does have alot more insight on the sport then i do and usually will answer any questions you have about it....Except maybe Joe are you bitter? I think Joe became Bitter when he looked at my profile pic and saw that is was I who was the shizzle dizzle andnot him.

Is Joe that guy who stole Arun's wave at the hook?
Kicked sand in Kyle's face and stole his g-friend?
Gave wakeboard lessons to the Vandal?
Stole AntBug's minivan?
hmmmmm, probably not!

But he is the guy who..
is one of the nicest guy you'll ever meet!
has the balls to tell you how it is!
will hook a brotha/sist'a up!
traveled the US filming the top female wakeboarders in the sport!
flew 600 miles at a moments notice to film/edit for pretty much 48 hours straight to help a friend out!

we've just witnessed ultimate gayness from a couple people accusing me of starting this.

i have the support of my friends, whether they post in here or not. you really think i'm so insecure that i would start this? i've been posting here for years. i think i've earned my keep.

actually, to clear this up, why not ask dave to post the original poster's IP address? and maybe compare it with other current users since we know it's an alias and compare it with mine.

Andrea's right, "king of sarcasm" seems like a good description for him on wakeworld. Other qualities about him include being a really good photographer, filmer/video editor, worker, rider(style to the extreme), friend, family man, dog trainer for his cutest dog Moby and comedian:-)

did you put a smiley on the end of your post as an indication that your entire post was sarcastic or just the "comedian" part?

If it was the former, I feel sorry for Joe. That would pretty much ruin his legacy. The comedian part I understand . . . (no smiley for vagueness purposes)

You hit it on the head. Great photographer/video man, etc. Been on my boat(awesome rider) and always welcome back. A bit of sarcasm never hurt. Everyone just take a chill pill. Joe is a great guy!

As much as it pains me to admit it.. I really like Joe. He has a great heart and was one of a handful of people invited to our wedding for this very reason.

Don't mess with Joe on this site. He has his own posse and they know how to find you. I made that mistake once and now I have no job and am homeless. Some say he is The Godfather of wakeboarding.
